Problem Re-Installing Windows 10


after I bought the Lenovo Ideapad 500S with Windows 10 pre-installed, a Linux OS was installed. Now, I want to change it again to Windows 10.

I made a bootable USB (with Linux), changed the settings in BIOS to EUFI and tried to boot. He's giving me 2 options; HDD and the USB after restart. But he won't boot from the USB... If I click on it, the screen flickers and returns to the same position.

When i made the bootable USB, i've noticed that the name has changed.

Any suggestions?

Hi I'm not sure if the media creation tool will work in your situation. I really don't know what you have done.
Always create a back up image with a 3rd party image program like Macrium Reflect before making major changes with the OS.
Maybe others will have more suggestions latter.
Windows 10


i used the create media tool and and had no problems. :)

Good for you! Thanks for the feed back!
